Can You Hear a Rainbow?: The Story of a Deaf Boy Named Chris (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago Learning Book) by Jamee Riggio Heelan

Does a rainbow make a noise? a deaf child asks a hearing friend. No, he is told. Some things dont need a noise. A rainbow is just the same for you and me. WHEN CHRIS WAS A BABY, his parents realized that he didnt notice the dog barking or a door slamming. Through a series of tests, doctors determined that he was deaf. In this intriguing, reassuring book, Chris tells young readers about what it is like to be deaf and describes typical events in his life and the ways he has adjusted to his hearing loss. With the assistance of hearing aids, Chris is able to hear vibrations, loud noises, and some other sounds. With sign language, speech therapy, and an interpreter, Chris days are much like those of hearing children, filled with classes, soccer games, and childrens theater. Accompanied by Simmonds vivid and energetic multimedia paintings, Heelans text explores the world of a real child and answers the questions many children may have about hearing loss.
